Have your say

Electricity pylons in fields near Holbeach St Marks have been given a bright yellow coat of paint.

But the colour change is just temporary as energy supply company Western Power Distribution has teams of painters giving the structures a yellow undercoat before they apply the familiar grey top coat. 
A spokesman said: “The pylons are probably going to be yellow for about a week, that’s all, unless the weather is bad.”

The spokesman said the painters would be kept pretty busy as there are 118 pylons to paint and the work is part of a routine maintenance programme to ensure the metalwork is kept in good condition.
